About three weeks before the release of the Salvatore EPrecording artist Salvatore Manalo joined me for a broadcast that featured his influences, new recordings, and a live performance.

Salvatore’s music is a genuine singer-songwriter approach to Blues and R&B. He showcases the best of these genres by combining skilled guitar work, stellar vocals, and memorable melodies. As a guitarist I loved hearing about some of the legends that have shaped his guitar tone and style of playing. While artists like Eric Clapton, Steely Dan, and Jimi Hendrix inspire his playing he draws vocal and songwriting influence from Allen Stone, Stevie Wonder, and Bruno Major, just to name a few.

In the second hour we treated our listeners to the then recently released single Rain, and the unreleased track Stay. Salvatore was also kind enough to play two a few songs for us live called Always and This Feeling which can be heard on the Salvatore EP.

I want to thank Salvatore for being on the program and sharing his music with us.

Please enjoy the podcast!

I host "Sounds of PDX" every Tuesday from 7-9pm.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.

I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
